Last year, Queen’s developed a one week dissertation writing group at a retreat on Lake Shift. The week provided students in the dissertation writing phase of their studies an opportunity to work with other graduate students to write full-time and meet with others with similar academic status. We have as last-minute invitation to to send some of our own students to join this retreat.
As part of the FGS Academic Excellence Fund, we would like to sponsor up to ten doctoral students. FGS will cover the registration fees, student train fare travel from Toronto to Kingston, and travel costs from train to Lake Shift.
The dissertation writing workshop will run from July 25th to July 29th — with accommodation and meals to be covered.
Could you please circulate to doctoral students in the final writing phase of their dissertation work (years 4, 5 and 6, and students with approved program extensions). We would appreciate an expression of interest on the part of students by Monday 27 June and we will let students know by 30 June.
